Glenapp Castle is a Scottish Baronial castle set in 36 acres of stunning gardens and woodland, offering true exclusivity. It is ideal for a relaxing break or to hire on an exclusive use basis for a wedding, family gathering or corporate event.
Glenapp castle opened to guests in 2000 and is now a member of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux Association and recognised as one of Scotland's finest hotels.
Owners Graham and Fay Cowan have painstakingly restored Glenapp Castle to its former glory after years of neglect. The castle is a spectacular example of the 'Scottish Baronial' style of architecture, set in magnificent private gardens and grounds high on a hill looking out over the Irish Sea to Arran, Ailsa Craig and the Mull of Kintyre.
All of the original character and atmosphere of this spectacular Victorian stately home has been retained. Each of the 17 bedrooms has been individually decorated in traditional style and furnished with carefully chosen fine antique furniture and original art. The 36 acres of grounds have also been restored to provide a magical expanse of glorious gardens and woodland, of particular appeal being the two and a half acre walled garden with its many unusual specimens and an impressive 150ft Victorian glasshouse.
Guests may spend rewarding moments strolling through the terraced formal gardens or play croquet on the lawn, or in more energetic mode, tennis on the all-weather tennis court. Dining in our award winning restaurant each evening at the castle is a peerless experience with the finest cuisine created by a skilled and professional team and complemented by carefully selected wines from the castle cellars.
The surrounding Ayrshire and Galloway countryside is ruggedly beautiful with many places of interest for guests to visit as well as numerous activities to enjoy either in the castle grounds or nearby.
